Magdalenefjord (Magdalenefjorden or Magdalene Bay) lies on the northwest corner of Spitsbergen. Arrive in the Magdalenefjord to fantastic scenery: sharply-peaked mountains on all sides, the craggy, sharp-toothed Waggonway Glacier directly ahead, and the golden sands of Gravneset just over the ship's side.
